. particles. and i will welcome to you this is our headline from moscow all conflicting reports about just how far west rebels have advance towards the libyan capital tripoli the opposition claims it controls gadhafi his home town but reporters say this is he is still in government hands we woll libyan state t.v. claims more civilians were killed in the nineteen coalition strikes in the south of the country let's cross live now to all of these policy if the latest on what's happening there paula what do you hearing about the situation with regard to casualty. well the libyan state television as indeed the tripoli government are reporting that the number of civilians who have been killed in these push is strikes now read. one hundred the latest we're hearing from him who is the
government spokesperson here is that three young men were killed in a fishing harbor not far from the city of sirte that last night sunday came under a strikes he says that these are clearly civilian casualties we're also hearing from him that some twenty nine people were injured in the town of bin jawad these are members of a peace coalition we actually saw from tripoli. benghazi and again the government insisting that these kind of attacks these kinds of injuries on civilians and poor coalition air strikes have made it possible for rebels to recapture their strongholds and they will not change on the nature when it takes full command. what we understand is that. transitional phase until tomorrow when there will be a summit that is held in london now we've heard from the nato secretary general that at that summit they will take full control of the military operations here in
libya but they are stressing and this is the nato leadership that they will continue to stick to the book in terms of enforcing that u.n. resolution one nine seven three nothing more nothing less the unity of command we're being told that nato will make the operations here on the ground more efficient we also expect at that meeting tomorrow. and that. germany will put forward a proposal for an immediate cease fire. and for an exit strategy think it's worth mentioning that no one here has actually heard from gadhafi in the last few days now the u.s. has said that the nato strategy moving forward which will mean that they will take control leaves america in the position of providing some kind of backup and we understand that that backup will be in the form of recognizance and also jamming communication the u.s. also saying that they are not looking at aiding the rebels as they advance way but this of course has been. here in tripoli because the criticism by the government
here is that the international community very much now is bringing the country to the brink of civil war it's actually hoping the rebel fighters advance further than they ever would because the latest word we have is that those rebel fighters are on the outskirts of sirte which is just some six hundred kilometers from the capital city will talk a little bit more about the fear of what you just mentioned there who's in control in that particular area as we're getting conflicting reports as to who is really in commom back. what we've been receiving those conflicting reports as well in the early hours of this morning monday we were hearing from that that actually taken over the city of sirte as you can well imagine people here in tripoli were absolutely shocked and even surprised by this because sirte is the hometown of the libyan leader moammar gadhafi it's where the majority of the people belong to his tribe it's way he has his most support reports coming through the rebel fighters had made little to no resistance there but now what we're hearing is that they've
actually been stopped about thirty kilometers away from the city and these kind of reports do seem a little bit more plausible we know that the entrances and the roads into search have all been mined we know that part of the reason why the rebel fighters were able to advance so quickly westwards over eastern libya since friday is because gadhafi soldiers were retreating and we understood that they were retreating to search where they have been seeing themselves and preparing. it is important to mention that while some of the focus is on so there is a lot of intensive fighting happening in the towns of misrata and in the western part of this country where we've heard that gadhafi forces have renewed. hearing that just in the last twenty four hours nine people were killed and twenty six people wounded we're hearing some reports that the soldiers are firing from tanks on residential areas and we're hearing from the rebels that they are with even aid from the united. we haven't been able to independently verify this but it's the
stage for a fight that could carry on for much longer when nato was questioned in terms of taking over the. operation one of the most telling on was that while they're preparing for a three month no fly zone operation could last weeks possibly months and as you can well imagine people here on the ground afraid it could last as they make clear times the tool of course the rebels goal is to reach to the wall around the capital reacting to the rebel advance and what are conditions like that. people are very frightened in the capital city i was speaking to some of this morning and they use the word bloodbath essentially saying that if the rebel fighters reach tripoli they will be a bloodbath here the situation is dire we know that for days now people have been running out of fuel if you drive past any of the gas stations here you'll see cars waiting in line as there have been for days now simply waiting. we've also heard
reports that the city is now running on food and medical supplies and those reports are being backed up by government claims that in the last few days there hasn't been one that's actually arrived at because nato has this embargoed around that maybe they said that before this crisis there were some five to seven ships coming here every day they're talking about ships with medical supplies with fuel. and with food but of course the coalition saying that these ships were actually being bringing reinforcements to the two soldiers on the ground. in tripoli with the latest for us. all the russian foreign minister says the international coalition is acting like the limits on the u.n. resolution in libya speaking at a news conference in moscow let's get the latest details now from. test what exactly are russia's objections to what's happening in libya. well as we can
see that after the coalition deployed be aircraft the the strikes on libya there have been countries that have come forward saying that they did not agree to a certain action so done by the coalition now let's look at the u.n. resolution it says there that they are going to protect the civilians from a use of force by the gadhafi regime however as we are seeing with unconfirmed reports now countries are saying that there is a limit to that in the sense that the coalition forces are there to impose a no fly zone and not to take sides and this is very clear in the resolution there's nothing there that says that the coalition forces are to take sides take the side of the anti-government protesters or have an offensive against the gadhafi regime that is clearly not in the resolution and that is what the russian the administration the russian government is against the well let's listen to what the foreign minister sergei lavrov has to say on this matter. we should do. is taking
part in a civil war in libya by targeting colonel gadhafi troops on the rebels this was not sanctioned by the using the solution which stated that the coalition is going to only enforce a no fly zone and protect the civilian population should the recent concerns about young confirmed reports of civilian deaths caused by the u.s. strikes would like this information to the time of the u.n. has every means to carry this out and we are expecting this to happen as soon as possible just so you know we can see that for the very start be in that it's against the spirit of the resolutely and what the right russia and the foreign minister sergei lavrov is expressing at their from the very start russia has given their statement that their position. that the reason why they had not used their vote to the u.n. resolution because they are for the protection of the seals they are against the use of force against civilians and this is clearly the position that russia is pushing forward but now they're taking sides it's really what it is they get. a
russian government worried so i guess we see that there is conflict in the actual execution of the un resolution we have the resolution there it's all laid out clearly in the in letters on paper however is the execution that really seems unclear at this point in time to testify about how to use it is speaking to us live from central moscow. well the reasons given by coalition forces to justify their intervention in libya are coming almost as much fun as gadhafi troops some query why libya is being targeted in particular when there are several other vonage uprisings in the arab world he's done to push the reports on what else could be motivating western powers. coalition leaders claim they're just in forcing the no fly zone over libya but have been engaged in widespread and heavy attacks on colonel gadhafi as ground forces and buildings and targets linked to his regime so what's all the real motives for france the u.k. and u.s.
leading the attack on libya some say it's pure vengeance but there certainly settling accounts and taking revenge turkey says it's disturbed by france's eagerness to invade but expose believe ankara shouldn't be surprised gadhafi is accused of ordering the bombing of u.t.a. flight seven seventy two which killed fifty four french men and women in one thousand nine hundred nine a u.k. court found the gadhafi agents the year before planned the bombing of pan am flight one hundred three over lockerbie which killed forty three british and one hundred eighty nine u.s. citizens he blew up his intelligence agency did a terrorist bomb very similar to the lockerbie bombing the u.k. was called u.t.a. flight seventy two and it blew up of an asia with the loss of everyone on board so i would argue that there's an element of revenge a strong element of us now more recently gadhafi has hurt french commercial interests all over the dock that he find french will for a towel have
a billion dollars he also bought russian fighter planes instead of french or felt it. but now coalition bombs are reported to be killing libyan civilians because she believes the west is resorting to heavy bombing and civilian casualties are concerned. that could increase regional hatred towards the west after. there will be quite. a resistance from of it count. critics say the western military alliance is simply taking. in what's an internal civil war rebel seek to overthrow an internationally recognized government western forces should be prosecuted not just for civilians but also for killing libyan. people. so.
as nato chiefs arrive to plan the next stage of the of libya there are growing calls for them to be held accountable for what they describe speak as collateral damage but which in real language means the death of innocent civilians the coalition no admits it's hard the original reason was only to impose a no fly the trouble is the more civilian deaths their causes the more they risk being accused of the same crimes as gadhafi himself. see brussels while our existence of online coverage will help you keep up to date with developments in libya twenty four hours a day check out regular updates correspondents on the spot on our twitter stream at our facebook page also find all the latest videos on our you.
